Fossil insects trapped in Lower Cretaceous Lebanese amber can be used for relative dating of its deposits. The detailed study of very large variety of the fossil insects and the consecutive establishment of faunistic profiles allows the paleoclimatic and paleoenvironmental reconstruction of the north-east region of Gondwana, 130 Million years ago.
